Ratings and Reviews
Love it. But slow launch
Love it but takes 20 seconds to launch and sometimes even forget what I opened it to search for.
Other times, I’ll end up typing in the search bar once it does load, realizing later that I replaced a previously open tab with the new session... and this is the main problem. As the app opens, cannot please show as soon as it BEGINS to launch, that their is already a webpage populated in the url, and/or a screenshot of the page it was on when last closed or exited from... or even just open on a new we page either when the app is relaunched after closed, as well as when it is just left running in the background.
Otherwise, I’ll always just open safari because it already does all of the things above... quick and I’m sure to never replace a previous session.
EDIT July 12: Another small update, no fix for any of the issues mentioned.
EDIT July 8: Several months since its introduction and many times the issue has been reported, night mode is still unusable after a few minutes and causes the entire screen to become a garbled and unreadable mess. I appreciate the additions to the developer log that I didn’t even know existed on mobile but there might be more pressing issues.
I’ve used this app for years and it seems to continue to get more buggy with each release. My first and main tab is Wikipedia, and so most of the bugs I find are experienced on that site. Whenever the app crashes (which happens very frequently, especially when switching from another app back to Firefox) it sends me to a completely random page from my browsing history on that tab, sometimes pages I visited last week. Night mode is great when it’s usable for a few minutes before causing the display to show a mess of distorted lines, partially or fully destroyed images, and various parts of the page being displayed on top of each other making it unreadable and impossible to tell where you are on the page. The night mode bug has existed for as long as I can remember night mode being a feature, while the flashback-on-crash issue seems to have only cropped up in the past two or three months.
Very nice but some problems
I initially wrote an extremely positive review on this app but that was awhile ago and now my opinions have changed.
I use Firefox for literally every device I own and have had no problems but this app is the only one that seems to have a problem. Upon shutting out the app and reopening it, if I was doing something where progress doesn’t save (e.g, watching a video, typing something, and even switching from one app to back to Firefox) the app will shutdown before I am able to recover my progress. It will continue to do so until I reinstall the app or spam click incognito until the app can get its bearings together and attempt to recover the lost progress.
I’ve had this problem for months now and it becomes annoying when I need to search something but am unable to do so because of this problem. I have started to use google and even safari much more than this as it provides the same as this app and doesn’t crash every time I open a new application. I really hope this can be fixed in some future update. I’ve read some reviews and a lot of people have complained about the same bug for awhile now which means that this bug is the least of your priorities?
